I have a small problem here.. I know to add a computer to a network you have to go on the comp using xp and click on my network places then click on "set up a home or small office network" and make a floppy.. cause I did it with my other computer that has 98.. but when I try to click on "set up a home or small office network" it doesnt do anything.. nothing comes up.. no options what so ever.. so I cant make the floppy to put on win98.. I tried going on the comp with win98 and adding file sharing support but that made me put in the win98 cd and asked for a file.. vxd or whatever.. that wasnt even on the windows98 disc.. can someone help me.. tell me whats going wrong.. or where I can download the files that winxp is supposed to put on the floppy for me when you click on "set up a home or small office network".. thank you..

Have you tried using your XP cd, you don't have to use a floppy. And make sure nortons IS is switched off before you do it.
Insert your Xp disc and select additional tasks then select set up net work.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
